debuild and fakeroot

 Currently debuild check if fakeroot is available by running 'fakeroot :'. 
fails on GNU/Hurd because fakeroot uses exec $*.  Changing debuild to use
'fakeroot true' will provide the same functionality but allows fakeroot to use
exec $*.

 The other possibility is to have fakeroot just run $*, then 'fakeroot :' will
work on GNU/Hurd as well.  I'm not sure which is better, but I think using
'fakeroot true' is more portable and more obvious.
